Diomedes

Oh my god, wont you ever stop with this reverse sexism and quotas paranoia?
Most gameplayers are men, most of them in "white countries", its normal most of the journalist are white men. Stop embarrasing yourself with this SJW paranoid concepts, buddies.

Don't gush: why the vision of Mirror's Edge Catalyst makes it a modern great

Current feminism doesnt seek Equality, forget about that. Atte least Gender feminism. They want half of your cake, and keep theirs as it is. Thats not Equality.

Many good willed people are being tricked by this. Oh, its feminism, they want Equality, I cant be against. That and their well oiled abuse and persecution in the social media is giving them an unopposed rule over moral superiority and social engineering.

As for the article, the Game is mediocre and we caucasians dont mind seen our caucasian companies putting caucasians in their future fictional worlds. Most works of literature and art in África , muslim world and Asia doesnt show White people at allí , go seek the diversity you want (ie no white people at all if possible) there.

Xbox One X Shadow of War shows profound improvements over PS4 Pro

Diomedes

Funny, PS4 Pro outputs 4K through CK but DF simply denies it by calculating what it would be the "native" resolution of one of the framebuffers used to create the CK image.

Are you going to do this in each game ?

Mass Effect Andromeda is another failure for trans representation

Diomedes

1 year ago

I think Sam is confounding eurogamer readers with some SJW bunch who would think for a second if the Trans approach is good or not.

Nearly 45% of the transexual people try to suicide, even after the operation to change their sex the % is still near 20%. They have enourmous mental problems and need psicological surveillance. Unless some game adress this I have to say no, no game is addresing well the issue. Now, if just as with women you want to see transgender characters kicking asses and taking names....

And by the far future it is logical to think there wont be any of these transgender thing. Its mostly due to hormonal problems during the gestation process, and sooner or later it will be addresed. We have to have faith in the science.

How Amstrad Action changed my life

Diomedes

1 year ago

People of the UK tend to project what happened in the UK in the 80s with the rest of the world, or at least Europe.

The Amstrad CPC may have been the third in the dispute in the UK (still with a sizable chunk of the market) but in continental Europe the situation was quite different. In Spain the Spectrum and CPC were kings, in France the CPC was de undisputed family computer, in Holland the MSX had quite a bit of market and also the CPC and C64, in Germany the CPC (Schneider) and C64 were far ahead of the Spectrum, in Italy the Spectrum and C64 were ahead but it was a three way race with the CPC, in Portugal it was CPC/Spectrum , in Easter Europe the MSX and KC Compact (CPC) were also important...


Software wise, there was a consequence of all this. People in the UK tend to remember the Spectrum ports for the CPC by most UK developers (not Ocean or Virgin, who regularly did put brilliant games on the CPC) but tend to forget in France the likes of Infogrames, Loriciels and Ubi Soft published in the CPC but not so often in the other 8 bit formats, the golden age of the Spanish software with developers as Opera Soft, Topo Soft, Dinamic was centered in the Spectrum and Amstrad (with the CPC having the best versions) with the C64 and MSX treated as an afterthought (some ports, but not so often), many german games had C64/CPC versions but no Spectrum ones etc.

The CPC had a very good presence in all the markets, while the others were totally absent from some (Spectrum in France, C64 in Spain or Portugal) , thats why the CPC has one of the best library of games of the 8 bits.

As for the console......gimme a break, I could buy new games on the 8 bit computers for between 1 euro (discounted) or 5-7 (new, being the 7.5 games big boxed games with instructions in colour and all) ......plus do the double casette recorder trick if you were out of money and copy a couple games from your friends. Buying NES or SMS games was a whopping 36-40 at the time, NIntendo didnt even have official distribution and some games arrived with 1-2 years of delay. The consoles only had an oportunnity here in Europe when the Megadrive arrived and offered Amiga-beating performance for 1/3 of the cost and games more expensive.... but 2 times more expensive, not 5 times as expensive.

The Amstrad was The King of The 8 bit Machines. Not only it had a way more homogeneous success across Europe (Speccy was a flop in France and Germany, C64 the same in Spain, Portugal and somewhat in France) bit that meant a best software support....French and spanish games on the CPC are technical masterpieces that put the Speccy/C64 versions to shame. In Eastern Europe it was sold as KC Compact and in Germany as Schneider.

Many games in The 6128 had better soundtracks, plus the very quick loading. The tape reader was way more accurate that Speccy/C64, Ellie one Must have had some kind of problem.

Extra power means little when games are hold back by The old hardware.

MS doesnt have momentum at all, barely any exclusive game in the pipeline.

The day the BONE showed to be inferior to the PS4 Richie suffered some kind of epiphany for the one plattform that could win against PS4.
Then, he started talking about "PC versions" when theres no such thing (theres a PC version for each PC with different hardware), about "budget PCs" more expensives that the consoles and running the games worse and started to see exact games with the same textures and detail for pixel as "vastly superior" on the computers.....oh well.

And next year will see some good titles too...

The usual EG hate and damage control against Sony. Nothing new under the sun.

Why dont you make the same article with the Xbox One and its even fewer exclusives? Why dont you ask yourselves why people bought high-end GPUs por their PCs 3 years ago when everything since has been able to be played on the PS360?

The PS4 has had a ton of games this year. You forget Infamous, you forget Strider, the Evil Within, Fifa, COD, KFC, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, The Last of Us, Minecraft, Yakuza Ishin and literally tons of games.

Not all are exclusive and many are download games, yes, but thats the industry these days.

@ThePissartist

As a good xbox apologist, he had to fell to the usual mental escapes the xbox fans have recently fell off....."if I wanted good graphics I would have bought a gaming PC!". Its just another way to undermine the fact that this gen the PS4 has the technical edge over the Xbox. Richie, as an ardent xbox fanboy, just cant stand it and has to undermine the PS plattform because you know if you spend lots of money in an open plattform you can reach better results (in the multiplayer games that are released)....

No ,interlaced is that you interpolate a "void" vertical line between two real generated lines of resolution. This isnt the same, all the lines are really generated.

Leadbetter, you bufoon, two framebuffers of 960x1080p blended and added to form a final framebuffer of 1920x1080p display the same pixel output that 1920x1080p. In fact, they ARE 1920x1080p. You could argue its not 60fps because effectively it doesnt refresh at that speed in the vertical lines, but not the pixel output.

You should go back to the conceptual drawing board before writing these pieces, you only embarrass yourself.

What a dissapointment.

It costs a lot, it runs games way worse that the new consoles at half the price, and it could have serious problems of overheating.

Oh, and it doesnt have many games, and probably wont have as most of the Windows back library wont be converted to SteamOS and it remains to be seen if the new games have all their SteamOS version.
